Survey Shows City Support For Curbside Recycling

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - Some interesting numbers from the city's recent recycling survey.

 

Of the 801-residents questioned, 80 per cent would approve of a residential curbside recycling program. At the same time, 45 per cent were unaware they could hire private companies for curbside collection of household recyclables.

 

Support for curbside recycling was not as strong when potential costs are considered. The study showed 66 per cent of residents would approve of paying $8 per month for residential curbside collection. If the monthly fee was $10, the approval rating drops to 61 per cent.

 

Councillor Jeff Carlson says they will pass along the survey results to the next Council. He says "we've already set our operating budget, we've gone through 90 per cent of our capital budget and this would take a big bite out of both of those, so even if we said yes today it would take some time, but I think it's more fair to give this information to incoming Council and say here's what our residents have said, here's the types of costs we talked about, if you want to go down this road in your next budget, here's the information you need."
